[Solved] Setting an Avatar under Profile | Forum Profile
« on: February 20, 2013, 10:18:47 PM »
Hi Neven,

When I go to the 'Profile' menu, then choose 'Forum Profile', I'm given the chance to select an Avatar (the thumbnail picture that appears beside your posts inside the Forum).

However, when I choose either of these:
  • Specify avatar by URL
  • Upload an avatar
I get the following message:

Quote
An Error Has Occurred!
The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved.

Sounds to me like there remains some configuration to be done in the Forum Administrator's setup to grant permissions to write files in the Forum upload folder.

Hope this helps!

Hi Lodger,

A folder setting on the server needs to be changed, or the link to it. Either way, I can't do that. But the person who can will do that soon.

I also want my avatar.  ;)

Done ! I managed to fix it (and quite a few other things btw)

Sorry for the inconvenience Dear Users  ::)
This forum helps me to feel less uncomfortable about "doing something" about the melting Arctic and the warming world.
Read again  Maslowski paper : why Arctic could melt in 2016 +/- 3Y !
